New wave crashes down on Rubio after Palin’s ‘flip-flop’ tweet

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio understood he was taking considerable risk by putting his name on the immigration reform bill currently being crafted by the so-called “Gang of Eight.”

He expected to alienate some conservatives, but did he anticipate Sarah Palin to be among them?

The former Republican governor of Alaska took to Twitter on Sunday to call Rubio out for his “flip-flopon immigration reform.

As noted by Twitchy, Palin’s tweet links to a story from detailing Rubio’s “flip-flop” over amnesty for illegal immigrants, based on comments — see video below — he made while campaigning for his current seat:

During a debate with opponents Rep. Kendrick Meek and Gov. Charlie Crist, candidate Rubio argued that giving illegal immigrants an “earned path to citizenship,” which Crist, Sen. John McCain and former President George W. Bush had advocated, is basically amnesty.

Rubio, who won that 2010 election, is now the leading Republican in the U.S. Congress pushing for illegal aliens to be given the earned path to citizenship that he himself insisted was “code for amnesty” only three years ago.

A new wave of criticism crashed down upon Rubio after Palin’s tweet Sunday, coming in the wake of the beating he endured last week after an immigration rally held on Capitol Hill by fellow Republican lawmakers.

Speaking of waves, it’s beginning to look as if the tide has turned on Rubio on immigration reform.

    My definition of insanity is trusting the same people who got us into this sad state of affairs to get us out of this mess. Most of them are into the One World Order train of thought and have done nothing to earn our trust. They have however earned our contempt for their disservice.

    Rubio's actions helped the liberals in a big way. They were starting to bad mouth him to try to destroy his chances in the next presidential race. They were really afraid of him. However, he has now destroyed himself. I doubt he can even get re-elected as a senator now. Too bad, but he did it to himself.
